No, I am not moving back to Birmingham, but to (what I hope to be) a marvy new apartment in Roswell. This new home will be super close to the church building which, after several months of a 45 minute drive at least twice a week, will be super nice ;)
This move to Georgia has not been an easy one, but over all it has been a very good growing experience for me. I have made some great new friends, learned a new job, and paid off a majority of my debt.
Thank you to everyone who has prayed for me and my family during the move! Pray for this new smaller move!
Have a great week!
On Saturday I will be loading a U-Haul trailer with most of my earthly belongings and moving to Georgia. I am excited, stressed, joyful, sad, worn out, and just about any other feeling/ emotion you can have, right now!
For a while now I have felt that I was at a crossroads in my life. "Which way now Lord?" I was praying for change, if that was what I needed, and also for an all around new growing opportunity. Then 'it just so happened' that a job came available when my sister works in Georgia. I applied, did a couple of interviews, and they hired me! So I am moving!
I am reeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllly going to miss everyone in Alabama, especially my sweet nephew, Drake. But every change in life is difficult and I am joyful knowing that the Almighty is on my side and I don't have to be afraid of anything!
So please pray for me and my family in our journey to Georgia and their return home to Alabama. Pray also for mine and my family's adjustment to this new life!
The Lord bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace!
Today I got some snow in my hair :)
It was cool, but it didn't do a thing for the way it looked ;)
I went to the Pompeii exhibt at the Birmingham Museum of Art. It was interesting to see all of the things that the people choose to take with them as they ran for their lives. It was a wealthly city, but very corrupt. One of the films before the tour discussed how the people worshiped pagan gods and were constantly trying to appease them, but all their worship was in vain. If they had only worshiped the only true and living God and believed Him, maybe things would have been different.
All in all it was very sobering to see the destruction of a city and its people. It reminded me of the destruction of Isreal and Judah, which we are studying right now in the teacher's class. A verse that really struck me in this current study is Lamentations 1:9-
"Her uncleanness was in her skirts; she did not consider her future; therefore she has fallen astonishingly; she has no comforter. 'See, O Lord, my affliction, for the enemy has magnified himself!'"
Contrast this with Proverbs 3-
(some random phrases)
'my son do not forget my teaching' / 'peace they will add to you' / 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding'
May we always carefully consider our futures and trust in the Lord with all our hearts!
So tonight I decided to make little pumpkin chocolate cakes for my fellow associates at work, you know a boost the morale, show a little kindness deal. Something that I forgot to factor in was that, after a very long day at work and not taking a lunch break, I was tired and not in a very kind mood. I will not go into all the details, but after slinging (accidentally!) half a container of ground ginger all over the kitchen and myself (me wearing my black Pleo t-shirt) not forgetting to snort a little up my nose, I nearly gave up the whole thing! However, I contained myself (unlike the ginger! ha!) and completed the lovely little cakes. They are lovely and quite tasty, I hope they'll do the trick!
In other news...
I am on vacation the ENTIRE NEXT WEEK! WOOO!
Pray for us to have safe journey!
